The bean soup (ash-e resh-te) recipe was great.

Happy Nowruz Cooking With Children to Celebrate the Persian New Year by Najmieh Batmanglij Mage Publishers, 2008. Every year at this time, I get into my usual schizophrenic Iranian mood of feeling excited about Nowruz just around the corner, and feeling panicked because I haven’t done the things on my list. I lose sleep over the budding sprouts of lentil on my plate, worrying that I soaked them too late this year and that they won’t turn into a decent sabzeh in time

Nowruz--the Persian New Year--is one of the world's great festivals, a full month of activities celebrating the earth, the arrival of spring, and the rebirth of nature. Most of all, it is a festival for families. Children and adults alike can share in preparing special meals, decorating the house, and performing the many ceremonies that welcome the New Year. This book is a guide to customs thousands of years old yet as vital as ever--enjoyable for families no matter where they live or what their beliefs.

Happy Nowruz offers twenty-five fun, easy, and innovative Nowruz recipes, with lots of photos to show you what to do. This is an ideal guide for parents, teachers, and kids--age six and older--to know more about the origins of Nowruz and to get everyone involved in preparing for the arrival of spring by: baking Haji Firuz cookies germinating seeds in eggshells coloring eggs making a Nowruz garland jumping over fires setting the Haft-sinn (seven-s) holiday table planting narcissus and hyacinth bulbs selecting and buying goldfish banging spoons for trick-or-treating cooking the Nowruz dinner enjoying the Outdoor Thirteen picnic

Each book is shrinkwrapped with a stainless steel cookie cutter in the shape of the herald of the New Year--Haji Firuz--for making and decorating Haji Firuz Gingerbread Cookies.

OK I cheated I bought this for myself, figuring that my skill level as a non-Persian adult was probably on about the level of a Persian child. And I was right! This is a great book if you want to dip your toe in the charming New Year customs of the Persian world (Iran, Afghanistan, Kurdistan) with recipes that are easy to follow.

As a cook and a cookbook collector, I was very excited to get this book, expecting to be like all other books of Mrs. Batmanglij; unfortunately not so well. It looks like fabricated plan with some great recipes ( repeated in her other books) with some very unusual crafts trying to make this festivities as much as possible American. I guess it was meant to be good but not meeting my expectation.
Not much recommended as her other books.

I really like the book - the easiest to use of all of her cook books. As the mother of two children with an Iranian father, this book really helped us to incorporate celebrating Nowruz into our family traditions. The bean soup (ash-e resh-te) recipe was great. We made the cream puffs and that turned out delicious (couldn't get the temperature reading she suggests, but they were fine anyway). I also made red rice with green beans (a childhood favorite of my husband's) - we loved it. Regarding the recipes here are a few tips:
1. the author always stipulates way more onion than necessary, so cut it by at least half.
2. You can leave out the saffron - the recipe will still be good.
3. You can substitute sour cream for Kashk (whey) - I do this all the time in the eggplant dip.

I love that this cookbook has traditional recipes and information about the Persian New Year. The photos and descriptions are terrific. My only complaint is that some of the recipes have ingredients that are not easy to come by, and no substitutions are noted (nor is there info on whether some of the minor, hard to find ingredients could be omitted, if necessary).

This is a great book for Iranian families around the world. Lots of great ideas for celebrating this lovely holiday with your children. I love her recipes and the photos are great.

It is a recipe book. This was an impulsive shopping but I am glad I did it. It is a nice book with good cooking recipes and some useful information about Iranian culture.
